First and last in all situations DON’T PANIC
Each day we wake up and we keep hearing about more closing due to the decisions that are being made by the leaders. Our leaders are attempting to make decisions for all of the US citizens, trying to keep all of us safe. With that it can become overwhelming for us, can you imagine how a child might feel? We have classes that are geared to empower children what to do in challenging situations. Our mission statement is, “We want to inspire hope in the worst of situations.” We want to bring simple ideas to make them feel like all can be OK. If we focus on five techniques we can be taking care of each other and taking care of our home.
1.) Wash hands with soapy water, rinse well and do it often.
2.) If you need to cough, cough into your elbow.
3.) Don’t touch your face.
4.) Keep space between each other about the distance of a school desk.
5.) If they feel sick tell your parents or authorities right away so they can get you home.
Another thought I would like to ask for us to all think about please. Many many people either make a menu and shop accordingly, or they just plan to purchase food every week or every two weeks. They are not set up to be able to purchase larger quantities of items. They either do not have the space, or the resources to stock their home. My thought is if we have adequate supplies for our home, that we consider over stocking our home so those that shop by menu, or shop by week will have supplies available for them when it is time for them to go shopping. It is important that we take good care of our families, and then good care of our communities. There are so many things we can do when it is important that we are mindful of our decisions, what we do, when we do it, and how we do it. Common thoughts, cover our mouths when we cough or sneeze, wash our hands, stay in if sick, things our grandparents shared with us when we were young.
This virus is alive 3 hours in the air, 24 hours on cardboard, 3 days on plastic, wood, and stainless steel. With this knowledge we should wipe behind ourselves if we are around many people. Don’t shake hands right now, allow space between each other These simple things can make a very big difference. If you would like to gain more knowledge about blood borne pathogen training, please give us a call so we can come out and lift your children up and encourage them that even a child can make a difference.
